"The mind is what the brain does," it's been said. And oh boy, it does a LOT.
And even though we cannot claim telepathy, we are certainly aware of other minds and what they are doing, without offering a penny for anyone's thoughts.
Think of our thinking of other minds as belonging to The Mind Club.
That's the name of the book by psychologists Daniel Wegner and Kurt Gray examining our attitudes towards each other, other thinking animals, and even some inanimate objects.
